Is Obama’s faith affecting your vote?

I know off the bat that this blog is going to tick some of you off. Some of you are going to cry and moan, but not tell me. Some of you are going to agree with what I'm going to say, but not tell me. And some of you already have exited the blog. Either way, this is all my opinion. I was chatting with my good friend PraiZe and this blog idea came to mind. So, with all that said, let's start the debate. Big Dusty, the floor is yours.

Is it important what Obama's faith is? I guess to a point it is, but shouldn't it be his own business? Now people went in an uproar because of his name, but come on now. Don't act like you haven't seen a black person with a strange name before. Jay Z calls himself J-Hovah, and there's no uproar for that, Christians? or should I say for some of you "Christians?" I actually know of a person whom will remain nameless...ok let's call him "JD"...who is making a video explaining why Obama's not a Christian. *faints* Give me a break sir. Ok Barack views may not agree with some of our morals. I understand that. BUT. George Bush was apparently for our "morals." Against gay marriage, against abortion...yada yada yada. Um, well good to see he did something about them in his 8 years in office. Oh huh, he didn't do anything about them....well crapacles. Let's say Obama may not be truly saved. Denzel Washington ain't truly save either, but he paid the building fund of a church in California. I don't think women are going to stop going to see Denzel in movies just because he cusses. Am I right? Now realistically the vote next week is between two people, McCain and Obama. I know there's others out running but do they have a chance? I say about as much of a chance of the Bengals winning Superbowl, but that's a different story. McCain and Obama has both flip flopped on what they said, McCain more than Obama has in my opinion. Both canadates have flaws. Oddly enough both are human and make mistakes. Before I end this I got something else to say because it's my blog. For all you people saying that Obama is the time you have a thought, let it go. Just shut up. Anyway, all I'm saying is, questioning a man's faith who is running for leadership of the greatest country in the world less than a week before we as a nation vote is a pansy move. Real pansy move. I hear people bringing up Jeremiah Wright and the fact that Obama was a member of that church. Obama doesn't control what Wright says or does people. As far as I know, Wright was a pastor which means he has a mind of his own. What happened with Wright, has nothing to do with Obama and the way he will run this country if he wins. To tell y'all the truth, I really can't wait for all this election mess to be over with and done. We as Christians, besides questioning a man's faith, should be praying that who ever is in God's will to be in the White House, will be in that White House in January. Let's stop this nonsense. Clark Sisters has a song called "Pray For the U.S.A." That's exactly what we got to do. So let me know what you think? If you agree of disagree. I'm done.

Lecrae: Rebel...thumbs up, thumbs down?

2 thumbs way way......UP! This CD is one of the most increbible Rap CD's I've heard in a good while. From song 1 to song 15, just straight up crazy. Is it a must buy, in my humble opinion, yes. Musically, I loved it. Originality is something I look for, especially in Christian music. A lot of Christian rappers think they have to use secular beats to get sales and to get people to listen. I disagree sir. I've always said and always believed that Christian rappers can and should use oringinal beats. If you need a producer, Great producer, and he's Christian. Speedy if you're reading, you're welcome. Anyway, back to Rebel, what a CD this was. I already talked about it muscially, now message wise, it was great also. The song Idenity comes to mind. All in all it was a great listen and the messages were inspiring. If you're a Gospel rap fan, heck if you're a rap fan in general, I highly recommend this CD.

This is just my opinion, so if you buy this CD and disagree with all I each his own. Look foward to your comments. If you already have the CD, please share your opinion. Until next time, have a good one.

Take out the biscuts because here comes some gravy

Holy crud! What's happenin? Hope everybody's having a good week this week so far, I know am. I'll get into that in a little bit. I caught a little bit of the debate so I have no opinions on that. I didn't watch the VP debates last week because, well to be honest with you, I didn't want to. I had no desire what so ever to watch that. I heard it was a good debate though. I asked mom about tonight's debate and she said it was crazy. I don't know how to take that other than to move on.

I got a live version of the classic "We Worship Your Holy Name" by Kirk Franklin starting out this blog on Windows Media. To the reason I'm having a good week. A few weeks ago, God placed it on my heart to go on a fast. Now before you get ahead of me this was not a fast from food. It was a fast from the internet. I basically blew it off and didn't think much of it. This past Sunday however I decided that I would go ahead and do it. I started it Monday and will end it this Thurday. Now you may be asking, "How can you be on a fast from the internet, when you're on it now?" Well it's only during the day. From the time I wake up until my mom gets home from work, which is about 6:00 P.M. It's been two days thus far and it's really benefitted. I've studied good Word and have done some cleaning in the process. Without going into much detail, I'm basically studying the Bible on things I struggle with, and it's really opening my eyes. I'm asking for prayer these final two days that it will not be a waste and will serve it's purpose.

"Songs That Brought Us Over" by Kurt Carr is playing now. I've been slacking on my story a bit which is something I didn't want to do, and with this fast I'm on it's going to be difficult to work my way back into it. It still shocks me a little bit how people become hooked on the stories I write, or began to write but never finish. I guess if I happen to get subcribers on youtube with my interesting videos, anything can happen.

Something I thought about today. With all the drama on TV, on messageboards, etc, if people would open up and read the Bible, they'd find all the drama they want. I mean take time to read and study the Bible, and you'll find crazy stuff. Incest, rape, murder, love, lust...what else do you want? Now of course you should read the Bible for gaining understanding and to use it as a road map to heaven, I'm not disregarding that in the least. All I'm saying is, why waste time watching Soap Operas for drama when you can find it in the Word of God and learn from it at the same time? I guess that's just me, I don't know.

"I'm Gonna Praise Him" by West Angeles Church Of God In Christ Mass Choir is playing now. I'm getting tired, and I can't wait for what I'm going to study when I wake up. Hopefully when I get on at night I'll have some comments on the blog. Y'all have good one.

God Bless,
